Hello everyone. I recently bought a Cooler master Hyper TX3 EVO cpu cooler. The reason i bought it because my cpu temp was raising without limit until the PC was shut down (over 110c on data transfering, shuting down when opening a browser). Now with the tx3 my idle temp is about 50c and on full load reaches 70c maybe even 72-73c. I am not sure why my cpu has such a high temp, i was expecting low 30c with this cooler. And it was installed by a professional.
50C (Core Temp) at idle with that cooler on the 5000+ is quite high. I'm thinking the pro that did the job might not have done a very good job. If you are up for re-doing it yourself, it's not a very hard job. You simply remove the cooler and clean the mating surfaces of the old TIM and put a dab of new on the CPU's heat spreader. Re-install the cooler and you are good.
Probably not the CPU, you might be having bad luck with coolers, thats why i do it by my self all the time, you don't know what the so called pro did, there could of been paste already on there and he put more on or took all of it off.
The temps before were too bad, these temps are better but are still bad for that cooler.
I don't have any thermal paste... But what is your opinion on the temp before i got the CM cooler? It went up till shut down. Maybe the cpu has some fault?
Your cpu was extremely hot at 110C. But, I'm not sure which 5000+ you have. There were several with that designation. Athlon x2, Athlon 64 X2, Black Edition... and several variations on those. Either way, 72C is around the max temp for most of those, I believe. It may be a voltage regulator over-volting the processor, or the processor itself causing the high temp... if the cooler is installed properly.
I reapplied the paste (some high quality don't know which) and the temps are only 2-3c lower. Why is my cpu on 48-50c on idle without overclock??
Do you feel confident the cooler is properly seated to the motherbord and the heat sync surface is making solid contact with the CPU? If so, your processor may be the issue afterall. Although I've rarely heard of a good CPU going bad unless it has been abusively O/C'd.
Since your processor isn't reporting its Tjmax, I can't say how much too hot your cores really are. But 89C must be below the Tjmax or the machine would shut down. Have you ever unlocked dormant cores in your Athlon?
